Originally the mango seed was germinated in water, moved into a pot with all purpose potting mix, in a morning sun , afternoon shade area .
Immediately after I moved house it didn’t look well . I sprinkled some epson salt and drenched it . It seemed to come good , then around two weeks ago he started really dying. There’s so many differences in where it is , soil quality etc , I’m wondering is it a combination of all the differences or is it most likely one thing that’s killing my plan . Please help , this was my pride and joy . I’m scared to uproot it again to try to solve the issues, in the fear of totally killing my little plant mate .

Hi Amanda,

Not enough info to be sure, but I suggest that you leave it alone and water it once a week with the hose. No more chemicals or fertilisers. Chances of recovery….maybe 10%. Good luck, Don.
